Morts are never welcome and handling them is an unpleasant chore, so you need an ensiler that allows you to handle a tote bin full in one go, without fuss.
The NORFAB SUPERMORT does it. Once the morts are in the bin, it’s all over, nobody touches them again. Quick – clean – easy.
The Supermort ensiler employs a well-proven 5.9 kW submersible chopper pump, housed in our own robust stainless steel tank. The pump is mounted on a guide bar system, so that if it has to be taken out for any reason, it’s simply a matter of lifting it off its base unit. No fuss, no tools, just pull it out. Reassembly is just as easy, using the guide bars to locate it back onto its base. We’ve worked hard to incorporate as many of the features our customers have suggested, to arrive at a system that is easy to use and to keep clean. The ensiler has the facility to re-mix through a valve mounted on the side, as well as to empty itself either into an IBC or tank. Acid is dosed either manually by a hand-operated diaphragm pump, or using an optional electric dosing pump.
Filling the Supermort is easy. With two models to choose from, with either a large intake hopper or a top hatch, you can put the morts in by hand tipping or use a crane or telehandler. For crane lifting at sea, we’ve designed a simple dump bin (extra) into which the morts are filled. Once full, the bin is lifted to take it ashore or onto a barge and placed onto a platform in front of the ensiler. By lowering the crane to drop the bin’s lifting beam, a hook is disengaged allowing it to tip, emptying its contents into the Supermort. Lowering the bin back onto the platform, the hook engages again and it is lifted away, ready for re-filling.
For sites with a telehandler or fork rotator, many users tip the morts direct into the hopper. Using the tilting telehandler forks, leaning the side of a harvest bin against the hopper as it tips, the morts flow easily into the large opening.
